How To Steal A Million

7.51 h 58 min1966X-RayU
In this elegant "caper" film, Audrey Hepburn stars as the daughter of a wealthy Parisian, whose hobby is copying famous works of art. His replica of a famed Cellini sculpture is inadvertently displayed in an art museum, and he begins to worry that he'll lose his reputation once the experts evaluate the statuette. Audrey decides to rob the museum, and hires a burglar for that purpose.

Beautiful people, great movie - pure film therapy (with subtitles)
Verified purchase
This review is for the Twentieth Century Fox DVD.
An elegant and witty Audrey is perfectly matched with the equally elegant and funny Peter O'Toole in an art theft caper with plenty of romance and tension. A beautiful colour DVD transfer with good sound, English subtitles for the hard of hearing and audio options in a number of languages. Givenchy outfits and Paris locations to die for. A joy to watch - film therapy at its best.

This film has been in my loft for several years now and I never considered it to be a great watch, but yesterday afternoon my wife and I needed cheering up and I thought I'd give it a chance to redeem itself. Glad I did. The DVD is perfect quality. Filmed in Panavision there are bars top and bottom. Lovely clear picture and sound and good subtitles. No extras. The film shows Hepburn at the very peak of her beauty and charm, and O'Toole is almost restrained and effective as her partner in crime. Great Paris locations, a good robbery sequence, humour and tension. Plus the growing romance between our principals. I may be a bit over egging it, but I truly enjoyed this caper film, and it is suitable for the whole family. Just relax and enjoy.

What used to pass as a fluffy comedy in the 60s now looks decidedly dated. For all the glamour of Audrey Hepburn and the elegance of Peter OToole, How to Steal A Million certainly has its nostalgic value and is pleasant enough to watch, but the whole thing just comes across as very silly and rather childish. Maybe we've all become a little blasé over the intervening years, but there are a lot better comedies from the same era. I never saw it when it came out, so it was rather a disappointment to find the two leads wasted on this not very funny caper. Pretty but banal.

Audrey and Peter don't hit it!
Verified purchase
Hepburn and O'Toole have always been among my favourite actors. First saw this film as a youngster, and was reasonably entertained. Bought this DVD mainly for a trip down memory lane. Still a delightful film but the story is silly and characters are unreal. Somehow Hepburn and O'Toole just don't hit it together, and the acting is just superficial, no wonder it was a flop.

... laughed so much for a long time - a fantastic romantic comedy
Verified purchase
Watched this with my 25yo daughter - we haven't laughed so much for a long time - a fantastic romantic comedy! I'm amazed we haven't found this film before, it is a real burst of sunshine in a grey world! Peter O Toole is not an actor I am familiar with - he was brilliant and having never seen Hepburn act, I thought she was pretty good to :)

The Perfect Crime
Verified purchase
This is one of the most entertaining and light-hearted romantic comedies of its era, with the stylish, gorgeous and unforgettable Audrey Hepburn in one of her best roles. The characters portrayed by Hepburn and Peter O'Toole are both endearing and witty, becoming embroiled at her behest in an intriguing plan to recover a family sculpture loaned to a Paris museum by her eccentric and compulsive art-forger of a father (Hugh Griffith) - and supposedly insured for a million dollars whilst on exhibit - to avoid his criminal activities being rumbled.

True to form, the end result is as all romantic comedies should conclude. Highly recommended and entertaining.
